Access to Dance, a Path to Unlimited Possibilities

A Guest Blog Presented by Keshet Dance & Center for the Arts

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Mexico’s Healthy Kids, Healthy Families® initiative provided a grant to Keshet Dance & Center for the Arts an Albuquerque-based nonprofit organization that provides access to dance and physical activity in a safe environment for low-income and disabled children in Albuquerque.

Remember when we believed the sky is the limit? When did we stop believing? The truth is we are all born with the gumption to be instinctively active, inquisitive and creative; yet somewhere along the way we’re told, “your body can’t do that,” pointing to a physical limitation, or “we can’t afford to do that,” describing an economic limitation.

What if we could once again see the world through the lens of unlimited possibilities?

Since 1996, Keshet Dance & Center for the Arts has been inspiring and uniting community by fostering unlimited possibilities through dance, mentorship and a creative space for the arts.

The reality is, families face limitations each and every day.

A key aspect of all Keshet programming is the belief that all bodies are dancing bodies. Keshet integrates a multi-generational cast of all physical and developmental abilities, including seasoned professional artists and dancers using wheelchairs and other mobility devices to assist their movement in dance classes and performances. Rather than shy away from these differences, Keshet celebrates them and educates our community to highlight the beauty in all dancers. The inclusive environment of Keshet’s Mixed Ability dance programming pushes back on perceptions of physical limitation and offers dancers the opportunity to rediscover what is possible on the path to unlimited possibilities.

“Dancing has changed my life because I feel like I don’t have a disability when I dance. On stage, I feel free, and I feel beautiful.” — Tonya (pictured above), age 25

It’s not news that funding for the arts has dramatically reduced in recent years, and this has only deepened the divide and limited access to all art disciplines, particularly among low-income families.

Approximately 40% of Keshet’s student body benefits from reduced- or no-cost dance classes, with 46% reporting a household income below $40,000 and 20% reporting a physical or developmental disability. This year Keshet expects to award over $62,000 in scholarships, giving approximately 250 youth the opportunity to participate in life-changing dance and performance experiences.

Currently, Keshet is offering online programming. Free pre-recorded dance classes for all ages and abilities are available on Keshet’s YouTube channel.  A weekly live online Zoom Dance Party for all ages and abilities is available on Keshet’s Facebook events page For more information about classes or Keshet’s Summer Dance Challenge, please visit keshetarts.org  or call 505-224-9808.

  • To anyone out there who thinks love spells don't work, I’m here to tell you that Lord Zakuza love spell is the best and most powerful. I am a wealthy man who has lots of assets and possessions but I have difficulty with women. Whenever I try to settle down with any, we end up breaking up and I had no idea of why I was going through such an experience in my relationship. It was so worrying that I couldn’t be myself anymore and I started searching for help everywhere even at my place of work. I was going through my work activities online and I came across a testimony of a lady called ( Febe Anouk ) regarding how Lord Zakuza helped her to restore her relationship with his love spell, I had to give it a try because I needed my Ex lover back that I love so much. I visited Lord Zakuza website online and I told him everything I was going through. Lord Zakuza consoled me and promised to help me out with my situation by preparing a love spell for me. I followed the instructions given by him to me and within 48 hours, my Ex lover came looking for me and pleaded for forgiveness. Since I came in contact with Lord Zakuza, things have changed for good in my life and right now,  I am married with two beautiful kids and my home is blessed. All thanks to Lord Zakuza I am forever thankful to you. Visit his website for any help via lordzakuzaspells.com or WhatsApp him on +1 740-573-9483. Try him and your life will be blessed.

  • After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don’t believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: spiritualherbalisthealing@gmail.com or WhatsApp him +15068001647 blog: spiritualherbal.blogspot.com you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything.
